The San Bernardino Courthouse occupied 370,000 square feet on a seven-acre site and consolidates services from seven facilities. The new trial facility serves the criminal, traffic, family law, probate, and dependency divisions of the Superior Court, as well as provides space for court administration, self-help, jury services, sheriff’s operations, and in-custody holding.
The new courthouse consists of 36 Courtrooms, 36 Judges’ chambers; office work areas and support spaces, as well as 33,000 square feet of public space and common areas. The facility also provides administrative areas for the following divisions: Criminal, Traffic, Family Law, Juvenile, Appeals and Appellate, and Probate.
This project also exemplifies the importance of safety and was recently awarded VPP status by Cal/OSHA, a very prestigious honor for overall site responsibility for worker safety and health. The project achieved LEED Gold NC.
